Stayed here Labor Day weekend and overpaid($150/night) This place is in desperate need of a thorough cleaning which would do wonders. It wasn't terribly dirty but was only surface clean. There were scuffs and marks on the walls and ceiling, the toilet seat in our room was old and chipping apart. There was only one power outlet we could find and there was an extension cord attached which was being used by the TV, fridge and microwave, so no power outlets.
Not worth $150/night. Only positive thing was that it's located right across from Ski Run where the Tahoe Queen leaves from.

You have heard the saying : "What a Joke" ? This place is no joke. There is nothing funny about staying in a property that should be demolished. You may try to convince yourself it it cheap, close to beach or just for 1 night so it will be ok. It is not ok. Other Super 8 hotels may have at least a "cleanliness standard" however this one does not. The property is in disrepair. Our rate was over $140.00 ! Sleeping in our car would have been a better option. The walkways are unsafe, some guests appear to live here full time, pool and hot tub are simply grounds for breeding bacteria...as well as the room's carpet, furniture, drapes etc. Go elsewhere, please. No Super 8 will see me again.

Room Tip: There are no good rooms. A majority of rooms were smoking rooms once upon a time to add to your dis...

The place needs a lot of updating. The 2nd floor walkway is soft and doesn't feel safe. The room was old and grungy. The box springs were broken so the mattress had a permanent sag in the middle which made it difficult for 2 people to sleep in the double bed. There's a sports bar onsite that had a concert that ended at midnight, which caused a drunk crowd to pour out into the hotel courtyard and they were very loud and a few were a public nuisance. The continental breakfast included muffins, 2 choices of dry cereal and very stale coffee.

I stayed at one Super 8 in the past and vowed never to do so again. But on a recent trip to South Lake Tahoe, without reservations, our usual go-to Motel 6 was full and we needed dog friendly accommodations that didn't break the bank (called around to multiple dog-friendly hotels which averaged around $250/nt - too much for us). We were very pleasantly surprised and will definitely stay here again.
The rooms are old, carpet worn, shower drained slowly,...BUT, the room was larger than average, there is a HUGE lawn to take the dog for potty breaks, a small/medium pool that we didn't use but looked like it was in good repair, a jacuzzi, an onsite restaurant, door-front parking, friendly staff, dog-friendly, good price ($99/nt + $10 for the dog), walkable to The Riva Grill for water-front dining as well as to many other shops (kfc, coffee, ice cream, mexican food I think...and more).
I do understand what the previous reviews are saying about being run down, but if you are on a limited budget like us and are traveling with a pet, this is a good option!

Room Tip: 1st floor is nice with a pet for easy potty breaks. 2nd floor rooms have private balconies which we...
